The Auck­land Coun­cil’s en­vi­ron­ment and com­mu­nity com­mit­tee has ap­proved the 2017/18 work pro­gramme of the Se­niors Ad­vi­sory Panel, an ad­vo­cate group for older peo­ple. The pro­gramme fo­cuses on bet­ter pub­lic trans­port ser­vices and ac­ces­si­ble op­tions for se­niors, qual­ity mixed hous­ing op­tions and ur­ban de­sign, and an em­pha­sis on cul­tur­ally di­verse pro­grammes. It also high­lights the need for more en­gag­ing recre­ational and com­mu­nity spaces and ac­tiv­i­ties, and the im­por­tance of pro­tect­ing the en­vi­ron­ment for fu­ture gen­er­a­tions. The panel wants to build its con­nec­tions with groups that serve se­niors across Auck­land to help pro­vide ad­vice to the coun­cil. Email se­nior­sad­vi­sory.panel@auck­land­coun­cil.govt.nz.
